Protistan Pathogen Perkinsea Webinar

May 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Disease Task Team (PARC DTT) seminar series will cover various topics related to reptile and amphibian health and diseases.

Severe Perkinsea Infection is an emerging amphibian disease linked to infectious protozoa. Its emergence has already impacted conservation efforts for the critically endangered dusky gopher frog (Rana sevosa) and likely will affect other species. Join us for an informative webinar to learn the basics about Perkinsea, including a global and North American perspective of the disease, as well as why we should care, and what we should do. The webinar will be led by Dr. Vanessa Smilansky and Dr. Matt Atkinson, two researchers who have studied this disease in North America.

This talk is hosted in partnership with the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. Closed captions will be provided via Zoom.
